Four of us mooted the idea and it was quickly accepted by the management. Next challenge was to hammer out the details. That done, the posters were up on the notice board along with the slides during weekly movies. In addition, SMS' reached every member. Cantonment was abuzz.
Entires started pouring in. Count kept going up and we could not accommodate all players in one day. So, the tournament had to be extended over two days: 23rd and 24th Jan 2016. Credit goes to EEPTA-- Eagle Environment Park and Training Area- for preparing and earmarking the course for the tournament.
